Good morning, AdLand. Here's what you need to know today:
Goodby, Silverstein & Partners opened up its first office in advertising mecca New York City. Its 15 to 25 employees (including two senior execs from San Francisco) are temporarily located at 7 World Trade Center while its office on Varick and Houston is being remodeled. Why the switch? Goodby himself told the New York Times, "we just lose so many people to New York. It's crazy not to access that." Now the shop might be able to retire the slide it placed at the end of its pitches to East Coast clients saying, "You call it distance. We call it perspective.”
